If you use arden grange its cheaper if you use their breeders club, or you can get it off petexpress, if you buy 6 bags its about £25 each including P&P

Hi new to the forum.
Perhaps she needs more time after having the pups. The bitch i got i gave her a year before i put any miles in, reason why i would not breed again.

Go by the guide on the bag of kibble, weight you dog and just feed a bit less than the guide says, i use james wellbeloved its a bit pricey but the best there is without buying of the web....

Not the cheapest but I've always had excellent results with Eukanuba maintenance/performance.

Try oijen dog food dry biscuit, it's high protein, low carbs, no grain and has won quite a few awards. They sell it down near my local pet store but you can get it off the net.
Bit expensive though but I mix it with raw food. Also try some pigs heads, butchers will normally sell them for £2 a head and the dog will enjoy and spend a lot of time going through it.
As for exercise, if your dogs ball mad try throwing the ball up and down the stairs, I shed a lot of weight off my boy and built his legs and shoulders up doing that. Good luck.

i have found raw to be the cheapest.
I get mine from ASDA or Iceland, ASDA is 1.40 per kg and Iceland is 3.00 per 2kg. Prety cheep from my point of view

I buy my raw frozen meats from Berrieswood Foods online, great prices and delivery, about £1 per KG for Chicken/Beef with Tripe, they also sell loads of other raw meats as well as all the good quality dried foods at good prices. I feed dry in the morning cos its easiest and raw (with puree veg and alittle brown rice) at teatime. I just walk my dogs for an hour a night and throw ball etc and they stay in good shape.

i use red mills greyhound food along with raw
07-17-2011, 04:23 AM
I'v used redmills, it's good stuff but I'm sure it changed so I switched to complete Raw. Gain 28 is what the greyhound/whippet/lurcher folk seem to be using these days biscuit wise!! Might be worth a look.
